Nikon Z7' AF is fantastic !!!

Postby Stany Buyle » Sat 9 May 2020 14:31

Yesterday I went for a walk in nature with my Z7 + the Z 24-200 and I was taking some shots of flowers & bees, all handheld...

This was frame nr 3445:

All of a sudden a nice hoverfly in perfect lightning appeared in front of me.
Shutter was set to 1/3200 sec, AF to wide-S and zoomed to 200mm.
Without any hesitation and fast, my Z7 grabbed the focus of the fly and kept it perfectly in focus for as many frames as I fired.

This was how I saw it in my viewfinder:

Because of the incredible nonsense that has been written about Z'AF, I include the frames with numbers as I see them in Nikon View X-i:

And the crops of every single frame, resized to 1000 px longest side:

After that I took a picture of something else...

and when the fly came back, my Z7 + the 24-200Z locked focus again without any hesitation

Z'AF is fantastic!

Thanks for looking,
Kindest regards,

Thanks James. Z is fantastic once you find out how it works.
I'll come back on this topic Friday, with some full-size downloadables...
